Ashley was born and raised an athlete. With a pro baseball player as a grandfather, a college soccer player as a mother, and sports lovers for everyone in between it was hard not to be drawn to the world of athletics. After playing many different sports when she was young, Ashley found a passion for volleyball and followed that passion to Georgia College where she played on the inaugural volleyball team for the Bobcats. While playing volleyball and going to school to study marketing, she met her fiancé and from there moved up to Michigan.
During the transition to Michigan, Ashley was trying to find the balance of how to still be fit and active without training to be a college athlete. In this journey she began taking group fitness classes where she found the perfect balance of hard work, sweat, and great music. After finding this love and being encouraged by one of her group fitness coaches-turned-friend, she decided to get certified and use her background in athletics to help create the perfect balance in her classes of teamwork, grit, and breaking out of comfort zones.
